A natural extension of SCIS’ decades of experience serving the energy community, SCIS supports PUCT, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), and the state’s approximately 100 Monitored Utilities in developing an outreach program that promotes better cyber and physical security of the electrical grid.
This expands SCIS’ service offerings into specifically providing federally cleared personnel to perform cybersecurity services. Dialogue, coordination and cooperation between the utilities will be managed by SCIS to continually identify vulnerabilities and security improvement measures enterprise wide. SCIS plans to utilize tabletop exercises, self-assessments, working groups, etc. to promote a unified corporate culture dedicated to securing Texas’ power grids.
“The Cybersecurity Monitoring contract with PUCT is another clear example of how SCIS and Paragon provide additional value to our clients and the public by providing innovative services and solutions built on the service platforms and strong safeguarding capabilities of SCIS and Paragon Systems,” said Tony Sabatino, Chief Executive Officer, SCIS & Paragon. The company will continue to broaden its service offerings to serve the needs of the Federal Government and critical infrastructure clients across the United States.”
